You don’t have to flip through a fashion magazine to see that dresses and tops with cut-outs that show that sexy little glimpses of skin are one of this year’s hottest fashion trends. Lupita Nyong’o wore cut-outs at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Awards. Model Daria Werbowy flashes her sleek stomach on February’s Harper’s Bazaar cover. The fit has to be right, warns image consultant Sonja Barnes. You can always go for a top with small cut-outs at the shoulders or neckline, Barnes says.
